Falmouth designer is People’s Champ

Club of the Waves website

A Falmouth-based freelance digital designer has won an international design award for his work designing and building the website Club Of The Waves.

Andrew Couldwell won the People’s Champ Award at the 2010 Pixel Awards in the Art Category. Each category has two winners, a panel of judges decides one winner, and the second winner is decided by a public vote. The combined number of votes for all of the People’s Champ winners was over 35,000.

Couldwell said: “The website has been online since 2006, but was totally re-branded, designed, built and relaunched in September 2010, so it’s great that it’s picked up an award so soon.”

The Pixel Awards annually honours compelling sites that have shown excellence in web design and development. They are based in California and feature entries from all over the world including the UK, Canada, North America, Belarus, New Zealand, Australia, and South Africa.
